One of the universal experiences we have now as humans are living with plastic pollution. Take a walk on a street in New York, Lagos, or Mumbai and you’ll see the same ugly sight: plastic bottles and potato chip wrappers littering the streets, getting swept away by the wind, and ending up the Ocean.
According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the world produces approximately 300 million tones of plastic waste every year, and most of this plastic ends up in the world’s oceans.
An international organization focused on ocean conservation, estimates that 18.2 trillion pounds of virgin plastics have been produced to date.
Most plastic items never fully disappear, they just smaller and smaller, the organization noted. Plastic breaks down into smaller pieces that are eaten by fish and end up in our food chain.
According to a global audit on plastic trash conducted by the Break Free From Plastic organization. Notably, the company’s products generated more plastic waste than the next three most polluting brands in the list altogether.
Over 72,500 volunteers from 51 countries participated in the audit. They gathered 476,423 pieces of plastic waste in which about 43% of them had a brand name in it. After analysis, it has been revealed that a total of 11,732 pieces of plastic were branded under Coca-Cola across 37 countries.
Coca-Cola got followed by major brands like Nestle, Pepsico, Mondelez International, Unilever, Mars, P&G, Colgate-Palmolive, Phillip Morris, and Perfetti Van Mille.
The BFFP report showed that the Nestle ranked second among the top polluters. Nestle is one of the biggest fast-moving consumers goods (FMCG) corporations in the world, with a massive plastic footprint.
Greenpeace International has urged Nestle to end its reliance on through away packaging and invest in reusable and refillable products.
